detroit: like the wild west

Tough times likely fuel bank heists

Aug. 18 was a particularly bad day: three holdups at three banks — Huntington Bank in Clinton Township and two Charter One Banks, one in Roseville, the other in Taylor.

Ray Roland, 34, who is accused of holding up the Huntington Bank, also faces charges in a spree that included a TCF Bank in Eastpointe on Aug. 17 and a National City Bank in Shelby Township on Aug. 19.

The most shocking robbery came Aug. 10, in which authorities say Ihab Maslamani held a gun that may have been used in a murder to a customer’s head during a holdup at the Flagstar Bank in Harrison Township.

“It could be family situations, but I think in this area, a lot could be the economy,” FBI Special Agent Sandra Berchtold said of what might motivate robbers.

it’s actually very surprising how many bank holdups still occur. i used to think it was a thing that happened in the 80’s.
